When the price of gold fell to a 5½ year low this summer, investors leapt at the chance to buy the yellow metal at affordable prices. First-time buyers, too, saw the opportunity to get into the precious metal market by buying gold and silver coins.
Whether you’re a veteran investor or a new buyer, there are a few coins that are must-haves for long-term precious metal portfolios. According to The Street, these are some of the best-selling coins from the U.S. Mint:
American Gold Eagle 2015 Proof Set
The American Gold Eagle is the quintessential coin for gold coin investors. The 4-piece proof set includes 1 oz., 1/2 oz., 1/4 oz., and 1/10 oz. coins. Having all of these coins offers a combined weight of 1.85 troy ounces. The proof quality of the set makes it truly worth its weight in gold.
American Buffalo 2015 Gold Proof Coin
The iconic American Buffalo coin looks even better in gold. Acquiring the 1 oz. American Buffalo gold coin will make any collector or investor smile. This coin is 24 karat gold, the first of its kind coming from the U.S. Mint.
Jacqueline Kennedy 2015 Gold Proof Coin
Since 2007, the U.S. Mint began honoring the First Ladies of the United States with the launch of the First Spouse coins. Each coin is a 1/2 oz. 24 karat coin. The third installment of 2015 introduced the Jacqueline Kennedy coin, which features the former First Lady on one side and a magnolia bloom on the other.
2015 Blue Ridge Parkway Uncirculated Silver Coin
Another great addition to your portfolio would be the 5 oz. America the Beautiful coins. Demand for these coins skyrocketed this summer. One of the latest in the collection, the Blue Ridge Parkway 5 oz. silver coin, offers a decorative quarter dollar with a reverse that details a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway and a flowering dogwood.
American Silver Eagle 2015 Uncirculated Coin
The U.S. Mint actually ran out of the 1oz. American Silver Eagle this past July, making it one of the most popular coins on the market. These coins are pure silver and an affordable addition to any portfolio. With an ounce of gold topping well-over $1,000, silver coins make a more cost-friendly investment opportunity that have the potential to reap high monetary rewards.
